I'll take it with a grain..
Weird quality home movie footage of trips to Paris, New York and China, hard to know when the footage stops of one place, then on to the other. I like though, how the filmmaker was quite interested in signage, especially in New York. Some grand marquees there (headhunters!). Not too sure why though the quality is so bad, sort of grainy but I don't think that's the film's fault. Apparently there's supposed to be color, but none of that was witnessed either.
